The perfect Halloween party theme for kiddos who are old enough to LOVE Halloween but don’t love a good scare quite yet. The Magic and Mischief Kids Halloween Party is a fun and friendly way to celebrate this most mysterious of holidays.

Next: Decorations and Costumes

Halloween is the BEST holiday for coming up with creative decorations and you can definitely do this on the cheap. An idea we thought was extra cute is the paper streamer monsters hanging in the lower right image of this photo collage. Talk about simple. Just slap a large eyeball on each streamer and you’ve got a wall of dangly monsters that make for a great backdrop. Especially for all the photos you’ll be taking of the kids in their fabulous costumes. If you want to stick to the “magical” party theme, you can always note on the invitations what kind of costumes to wear or let kids be what they want to be and see what happens!

Can’t forget: the treats!

Whatever treats you serve at this Halloween bash should double as decorations for sure! Take a look at the Frankenstein cups with treats on top as a fun and easy way to serve up some candy. If you want to try your hand at some homemade creations, the candied apples that look like wailing ghosts are tasty and they make a big visual impact. Remember though, your Halloween treats don’t have to involve food. If a few of the kids have allergies, try an alternative to the typical treat and give everyone a fun activity favor like bubbles or mini puzzles.
